“The pictures tell me a story. And this book is awesome.” — Jackson, age 6

ABOUT THE BOOK
A rainy day. Three kids in a park. A dinosaur spring rider. A bag of chalk. The kids begin to draw. . . and then . . . magic! The children draw the sun, butterflies, and a dinosaur that amazingly come to life. Children will never feel the same about the playground after they experience this astounding wordless picture book and the power of the imagination. Bill Thomson embraced traditional painting techniques and meticulously painted each illustration by hand, using acrylic paint and colored pencils.

ABOUT BILL THOMSON: In a starred review for Chalk, Thomson was hailed by School Library Journal as “a master at visual storytelling.” He is Professor of Illustration at the University of Hartford and lives with his family in Connecticut. Chalk was named an ALA Notable Children’s Book, a Bank Street Best Children’s Book of the Year, and to the Baker’s Dozen List: The Best Children’s Books for Family by the Pennsylvania Center for the Book.

Amazing! I already love this book. These kids need to go over to my channel and listen to my books to tell me if I’m doing a good job or not. My books have words, though. May not be good for Jackson, but the other kids might enjoy!
